- I am an altruistic person by nature, so helping others really makes me feel happy. That is why I chose to study nutrition- so that I can help myself and everyone around me be the very best they can be. That is also why I choose now to teach ESL. I love learning new languages myself, and I think it is wonderful for anyone to learn a new language. It is great to be able to communicate and make a connection with as many people as you can to enrich your life.
